What’s in it for Writers?
A writer’s life is tough. We hear comments like, “Anyone can write,” or “I hate reading,” from non-literary folks, yet we continue on in our plight to pave careers from the words we scribble on paper.
Today, getting published or noticed requires building your profile. We writers can help each other by commenting, sharing, and providing feedback. If you want a book review or author interview, just ask me. I’m happy to comply, barring time (audiobooks take precedence for now).
Note: I review books to endorse them. If I don’t like a book, I won’t review it.
Writers need all the support they can get. The only people who truly appreciate us are other writers and avid readers. This website is a place for writers to build their notoriety through reviews and interviews.
What’s in it for Readers?
For all you voracious readers, I offer free stories for you to devour at your leisure. No fees or downloads necessary; you can just browse my site full of fiction and stories on travel and food. Every bookworm knows there’s never enough time to read as much as you want, so I try to keep my short stories… well, short.
And, if you’re looking for a good book suggestion or reading discussion, check my Book Reviewing section. Use those literary skills that book haters can’t understand and have a conversation with the rest of us bibliophiles.
Why AMA Writes
I write stories to broaden minds and share experiences.
I admire the power of words skipping on a page and want to become a master of those intangible thoughts that manage to escape and grab the attention of readers. There is so much untapped power in the pen.
In college I studied literature and creative writing, earning degrees in both fields. Since then, I have written copy for numerous industries, wearing many styles of hats. Biographies, newsletters, product descriptions, and blogs are all part of the ever-changing suit that freelancing has dressed me in. But, working for an online eBook store was when I reviewed books by mainstream and independent authors alike and interviewed well-known authors (Gregory Maguire, Janet Evanovich, Joanne Fluke, Kate Lauren, etc.), and attended the BEA (Book Expo of America) where I met Christopher Paolini (author of Eragon series), who complimented me with, “Amelia – that’s a really nice name!”
Until the company was closed down during the fall of so many bookstores, there was a thriving community of readers and writers. I’m hoping we can build another community of literary types here.
Keeping posts fun and informative, I try to maintain a balance that shows the real me.
